Point Spread Pick
MIN Vikings Win -3.0PIT Steelers @ MIN Vikings

Thursday Night Football has been dubbed by some as the “Lions Bowl” as it features the only teams that have played Detroit and failed to beat them this season. Pittsburgh tied with the Lions a couple of weeks ago before Minnesota handed Detroit its first win of the year last week. The Vikings will no doubt be furious to have lost that game and they should be able to bounce back with a win. Despite being 5-7, Minnesota is yet to lose a game by more than a score this season, and I’m still convinced the Vikings are better than their record suggests. Kirk Cousins has thrown just 3 interceptions all season while accumulating the 6th-most passing yards in the league. Adam Thielen could be absent with an ankle injury, which would be a blow, but fellow wideout Justin Jefferson has proved that he’s more than capable of carrying the load. Running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) missed the Lions game and his status is also worth monitoring but backup running back Alexander Mattison has performed well whenever he has been out.

Mattison could be crucial to Minnesota’s success as he will be going up against a Steelers defense that allowed more yards per carry (4.8) than any other team in the league. Joe Mixon punished Pittsburgh just two weeks ago, and while the Steelers were better in their win over the Ravens last week, they will likely struggle to contain both the passing and ground game of the Vikings. Take Minnesota to cover the spread.

Game Totals Pick
Over 44.5PIT Steelers @ MIN Vikings

Although these teams have taken part in some low-scoring games this season, this total looks a little too low. For starters, they both struggle a lot at stopping the run. The Steelers have allowed a league-most 4.8 yards per carry this season, with their pitiful run defense on full display against Joe Mixon a couple of weeks ago, while the Vikings aren’t much better as they’re allowing 4.7 yards per carry. Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel combined for 199 rushing yards against Minnesota two weeks ago, while Detroit’s Jamaal Williams put up 71 against them last week. Both Najee Harris and Alexander Mattison have proved themselves to be solid running backs this season, and they should make each opposing defense pay.

Pittsburgh and Minnesota have been good in the passing game with Kirk Cousins having arguably his best season, and both offenses should have success in moving the chains. The over is 4-1 in the Vikings’ last 5 games, and this line looks generous enough for that trend to continue. Lean towards the over.

Money Line Pick
BAL Ravens WinBAL Ravens @ CLE Browns

The Baltimore Ravens will be eager to bounce back from a rough loss to Pittsburgh and stay atop the AFC North when they visit the Cleveland Browns in Week 14. Baltimore had won 2 in a row before blowing a 4th-quarter lead against the Steelers and falling 20-19 this past Sunday. Head coach John Harbaugh’s team had no business losing a game in which it never trailed until the final 1 minute and 48 seconds, but it still leads the division by a game over Cincinnati. The Ravens are No. 1 in the league in rushing defense and they are surrendering an average of only 14.3 points over their past three outings.

This just isn’t a good matchup for the Browns. Baker Mayfield has 11 TDs and 6 INTs on the year, including 3 of each in the last 3 games. Cleveland has to rely on its running game, but that’s not what anyone wants to do against the Ravens. Interestingly, this is the Browns’ second straight contest against the exact same opponent. They lost to the Ravens 16-10 on Nov. 28 prior to last week’s bye. Baltimore is 15-5-1 ATS in its last 21 as an underdog and 10-2-1 ATS in its last 13 trips to Cleveland. The Browns are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall, 2-6 ATS in their last eight at home, and 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings between the two teams. It is also worth noting that the road team is 16-7-1 ATS in the last 24 head-to-head matchups. The Ravens should not only cover but also win outright.

Game Totals Pick
Under 42.0BAL Ravens @ CLE Browns

A total of 16 points were scored in the Ravens-Browns game 2 weeks ago. Sure there will probably be more than that put up this time around, but the number is still too large. As mentioned in the ML write-up, this is a dreadful matchup for Cleveland’s offense. Kareem Hunt returned from a 5-week absence in the loss to Baltimore but amassed just 20 yards on 7 attempts. As for Baltimore’s offense, it has gone 4 consecutive contests without reaching the 20-point mark. Lamar Jackson has accounted for only 3 touchdowns in total over the last 3 games. The under is 4-0 in the Ravens’ last four overall, 5-0 in their last five on the road, and 4-1 in their last five against the AFC. It is also 4-1 in the Browns’ last five at home. Additionally, the under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. Back the under.

TB Buccaneers Win -3.0BUF Bills @ TB Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be trying to extend their winning streak to 4 games when they host the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. Tampa Bay is coming off consecutive victories over the Giants, Colts, and Falcons. Antonio Brown is suspended, but that shouldn’t matter for a number of reasons. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin still make for one of the best WR duos in the sport, Rob Gronkowski has stepped up with 17 catches for 252 yards and 2 touchdowns over the past 3 games, and Sunday’s contest will probably feature a heavy dose of Leonard Fournette since the Bills are weaker against the run than they are against the pass. Fournette had 100 yards and 3 scores during the Week 12 victory over Indianapolis.

There is not much to break down when it comes down to the recent Monday Night Football game between Buffalo and New England. Passing games were rendered irrelevant because of weather conditions as the Bills fell 14-10. What does matter is that they are playing on a short week and still licking wounds from an alarming 3-4 record in their last seven outings. It’s safe to say that Josh Allen is no longer an MVP candidate and his team has seemingly gone from Super Bowl contender to pretender. Buffalo is 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams. The Bucs are 4-0 ATS in their last four at home and 5-2 ATS in their last seven against opponents with winning records. It is also worth noting that the home team is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five head-to-head matchups. Go with Tampa Bay and do so with confidence.

Game Totals Pick
Over 52.5BUF Bills @ TB Buccaneers

Allen and company surely can’t wait to play a normal football game under more standard conditions, which is expected to be the case on Sunday in sunny Tampa, Fla. In their last three games prior to Monday’s absurdity, the Bills posted a combined 91 points. On other side of the ball, cornerback Tre’Davious White is out for the season with a knee injury. That wasn’t a factor for obvious reasons against the Patriots, but it will be in a big way against the Bucs. Tom Brady is coming off a 368-yard, 4-touchdown effort against Atlanta, pushing his total to 34 passing TDs for the season. The over is 6-0 in the Bills’ last six as underdogs. It is also 4-1 in the Bucs’ last five against opponents with winning records and 11-4 in their last 15 as home favorites. Lean toward the over.

The Home Of Free Expert NFL Picks For The 2021/22 Season

Even though there are just 18 weeks in the regular season with a maximum of 16 games per week, NFL betting is easily the most popular North American sports wager. NFL point spreads and season win total prop bets are one of the few in the major sports that are openly discussed by announcers and fans alike. Because of betting, and the popularity of fantasy football, every single game of the NFL season is important, widely discussed, analyzed, and a great opportunity to get in on the action with our free NFL expert picks.

Free NFL Picks Explained

There’s almost an infinite way to bet on the NFL, from NFL picks against the spread, over/under, Parlays, Prop Bets, daily fantasy sports, or even scoreboard squares, there is a wager type for every kind of football fan. Some bettors like to specialize in a single particular type of NFL pick, while others like to be diverse and wager as many ways as they can on a game. Both types of players can be successful with a disciplined and calculated strategy which is the great thing about NFL betting.

Free NFL Picks Against the Spread

The most popular way to bet on the NFL is against the spread (ATS). With these wagers, you are not picking a simple winner or loser of a game. Instead, ATS betting is placing your money that Team A wins by a certain amount of points (Philadelphia -7 for example) or that Team B will keep the game closer than oddsmakers expect (Chicago +3.5). The great thing about ATS NFL betting is that the team you wager on can lose outright, but your bet can still be a winner (a Chicago 17-20 loss). Our NFL picks against the spread are our most popular bet on site, and the game lines are widely discussed by sport shows and experts in the lead-up to matches. A fun stat worth noting is that the team that covers the spread wins the game outright around 80% of the time.

Free NFL Over / Under Picks

When you aren’t 100% confident in which team is going to win in an NFL game, or would rather wager on the game, rather than a team, another exciting way to still get in on the action is with totals wagers. In these bets you don’t take a side, but whether the two teams will combine to score over or under the total number of points that the oddsmakers have set. This is why last-second field goals in 24 point blowouts are still edge-of-your-seat moments as they can push the total over or under the set line. We preview every game of the NFL season, providing expert insight into the game alongside NFL picks which will always include a pick on the over/under market in each game of the NFL season.

Money Line NFL Picks

Ask any seasoned NFL bettor and they’ll tell you that ATS betting is exciting, but can also be frustrating. It is important to keep in mind that NFL teams are only looking to win by one, of course, they’d love to win by more, but they’ll change their schemes late on to secure a win, not to ensure they cover the spread.

Your research could have given you the right side, but if they win by 6 instead of 7 your -6.5 bet is a loss. Therefore a lot of wagerers enjoy money line (ML) NFL expert picks. The best way to describe ML bets is that you simply wager on either a winner or loser with no spread involved. If you’re confident in an underdog, ML bets are also a great way to increase your profits. If a team is +10 ATS, for example, they may be upwards of +350 on the money line to win outright meaning a $100 bet would pay you $350.

NFL Schedule 2021/22

Big offseason changes now see the 2021/22 NFL season Schedule move to 17 regular-season games for the first time. It’s been years in the pipeline that the NFL will seek to expand the regular season, and 2021/22 will be the first 17-game season, following the expansion of the playoffs in 2020/21.

The 2021 NFL season will be the 102nd in league history and is set to kick off with the NFL Kick-Off game on September 9th, hosted by the defending Super Bowl Champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 2021/22 regular season will come to a conclusion on January 9th, 2022 with the NFL Playoffs scheduled to begin the following weekend on the 15th & 16th January 2022.

Super Bowl LVI is scheduled for February 13th, at SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California, which is the shared home of both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.

Regular Season NFL Expert Picks – NFL Picks This Week

Some sites solely focus on the marquee games of an NFL slate but our system features expert picks for every game of the NFL season. The best way to have success in NFL betting is by finding those under-the-radar games like Miami at Jacksonville that do not draw as much public betting interest as Dallas vs. Green Bay. Our expert handicappers spend just as long researching the under-the-radar games, as they do for Thursday Night Football or Primetime Football games. Our NFL picks this week are the best ways to get a breakdown and a reading of all the games on an NFL slate, with a complete game preview alongside our best NFL picks for each game.

NFL Playoff Picks & Futures

Throughout the NFL season, we also give you free long-term, often season-long picks such as our NFL Futures Bets, which include both team-based and individual player prop bets. Not only do we publish our previews and picks for every game of the NFL regular season but we do the same for the playoffs as well. There’s a lot of money to be made in the relatively short NFL season – why not make the most of it? The stakes in the NFL playoffs are even higher and the margins between the teams are usually even smaller. With more on the line and the best against the best, the hours of research and analysis our NFL experts put in are at even more of a premium. Follow our NFL playoff picks throughout the entire NFL postseason, right through to the Super Bowl itself.

More Than Just NFL Picks

We also specialize in every major North American sport including the MLB, NBA, NHL, and College Football, and College Basketball. Check out our site every single day for some of the best bets in every major athletic contest and make sure to follow us on social media as well.
